This page cites scripture from the King James Bible to prove that true disciples of Christ have authority over unclean spirits of all kinds.
If you are already a Christian, you can have this authority, too, if you give yourself totally to Him and forgive everyone who has ever done you wrong in any way.
May our Lord Jesus Christ continue to bless you as you walk with Him.

We Have Scriptural Authority To Exercise Power Over Unclean Spirits, In The Name Of Jesus Christ

If we are true disciples of Jesus Christ, He has given us the authority to exercise power over unclean spirits of all kinds, in His name. These include Satan, his demons, and the spirits of all the various sicknesses and diseases.
Printed below is an official notice, from us to them, declaring and explaining our authority over them, according to God.
Unclean spirits need to know that we have legitimate authority over them, from God.
                "And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus
                 I know, and Paul I know, but who are ye?"
                 (Acts 19:15 KJV)

This notice explains it to them.

If you would like to participate with me in delivering people from unclean spirits, then I invite you to make this notice (below) your own, by removing my name and writing in *your* name on the third line.
WARNING: Make sure that all the statements apply to you, and be advised that there is real danger involved if you do not actually meet all the requirements regarding faith in Jesus and forgiveness.
                  *                *                *



MY NAME IS BILL MCGINNIS. (Use your name here, if you choose to do so.)
These unclean spirits include Satan, his demons, and the spirits of all the various sicknesses and diseases.

    By myself, I am nothing but another guilty sinner, doomed to hell.
    All the evil of mankind resides in me, and I know it from
    direct personal experience.

    However, I have accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour, and 
    I have given myself totally and completely to Him, even to
    death and beyond. I know for a certainty that He is Son of God,
    raised from the dead to be my personal Saviour.

    Also, and of great importance, I have completely forgiven
    everyone of all their trespasses against me. And I continue
    to forgive all who trespass against me, even as their trespasses
    against me continue unrepented and unabated.

    Therefore, His dying blood has given me new life in Him, and it 
    continues to cleanse me from all unrighteousness, even as I continue
    to sin. 

    So I stand before Him spotless in His eyes, worthy to be His disciple,
    not through any merit of my own, but totally by His loving grace to
    forgive me, according to my faith in Him and my forgiveness of others.

    As His true disciple, I have power from Him over all unclean
    spirits: specifically, to bind them, cast them out, and loose
    whatever they have bound, in the name of Jesus, as the Holy
    Spirit leads me.

    I can exercise this power over them in person, face to face,
    or from any distance, by written or spoken words, addressed to

                 *            *           *         

These scriptures confirm that I have this power over unclean spirits:
First, I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and I have met the conditions for salvation.
          John 3:16 (KJV)

          For God so loved the world, that he gave his only
          begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him 
          should not perish, but have everlasting life.

          Romans 10:9 (KJV)

          That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the
          Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart
          that God hath raised him from the dead, thou
          shalt be saved.

Next, I am continuously forgiven of my sins, as they occur. Therefore at any moment I stand justified before God, by His grace, by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. Thus, I am a true disciple of Jesus.
When He forgives us, He forgives us completely, "as far as the east is from the west."
           "As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed
            our transgressions from us." (Psalms 103:12 KJV)

He instructs us to forgive others again and again when they sin against us . . .
         "Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my
          brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?
          Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times:
          but, Until seventy times seven." (Matthew 18:21-22 KJV)
. . . and He will then forgive us the same way.
                   "For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly
                    Father will also forgive you:
                   "But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither
                    will your Father forgive your trespasses."

                               (Matthew 6:14-15 KJV)

We are dwelling in Christ, and He in us. His blood cleanses us from all sin, and makes us spotless before Him.
            " . . . and the blood of Jesus Christ his son
            cleanseth us from all sin." (1 John 1:7 KJV)

            " . . . though your sins be as scarlet, they 
             shall be white as snow . . . " (Isaiah 1:18 KJV)

Jesus gives His true disciples power over unclean spirits, including Satan, his demons, and the spirits of all the various illnesses and diseases.
First, He gave this power to His original twelve disciples.
            Matthew 10:1 (KJV)

            And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he
            gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out,
            and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of

            Matthew 10:8 (KJV)  (Jesus to the twelve disciples)      
            Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out
            devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

Then, He gave it to His appointed seventy people.
            Luke 10:19 KJV  (Jesus to His appointed seventy people)
            Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and
            scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing
            shall by any means hurt you. 

Finally, He gives this authority to all His true disciples, those who stand blameless before Him, by His grace.
            Matthew 28:18-20 (KJV) (Power extended to new disciples)
                    And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power
                    is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
                    Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing
                    them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and
                    of the Holy Ghost:
                    Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have
                    commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even
                    unto the end of the world. Amen.

                            NOTE: Among the "all things whatsoever I
                            have commanded you" are included the
                            instructions to "heal the sick" and "cast out
                            devils" given in Matthew 10:8, above.                      

            Mark 16:17-18 (KJV) (Power of believers to cast out demons)

            And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name
            shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new
            They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any
            deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay
            hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

This authority also includes the power to bind the unclean spirits and to loose whatever they have bound.
            Matthew 18:18 (KJV)
            Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth
            shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on
            earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Since it is the Lord's intention that we act against unclean spirits, He will make it possible for us to do so, even from a distance, just as Jesus did in the cases of The Nobleman's Son (John 4:46-53) and the Canaanite's Daughter (Matthew 15:22-28).
             "For with God nothing shall be impossible."
              (Luke 1:37 KJV)

             " . . . for with God all things are possible."
              (Mark 10:27 KJV)

May the Lord bless this presentation of His holy Word.
